  • Bright Memory: Infinite is a supernatural first-person shooter.
  • It will be optimized for Xbox Series X and support Smart Delivery.
  • It was easily the best-looking gameplay from the showcase, and we got a lot of it.

During the Xbox Series X gameplay showcase on Inside Xbox, we got a good look at Bright Memory: Infinite that was announced for Microsoft's upcoming console. If you're a fan of the cyberpunk aesthetic, you're in luck. It's a first-person shooter (FPS) with action elements.

You can take a look at the gameplay below. This is actual footage recorded from Xbox Series X.

Bright Memory: Infinite is an all-new lightning-fast fusion of the FPS and action genres, created by FYQD-Studio. Combine a wide variety of skills and abilities to unleash dazzling combo attacks. Bright Memory: Infinite is set in a sprawling, futuristic metropolis in the year 2036. A strange phenomenon for which scientists can find no explanation has occurred in the skies around the world. The Supernatural Science Research Organization has sent agents out to various regions to investigate this phenomenon. It is soon discovered that these strange occurrences are connected to an archaic mystery –an as-of-yet unknown history of two worlds, about to come to light.

  • This is how you showcase gameplay for new hardware. And this is what the next MS event game presentation trailers needs to be full.
  • This trailer came from the game presentation that everyone had issues with.
  • I know. This is the only trailer that was shown that did it right. This developer was confident in his/their work to not rely on a lot of cinematics and just showed the actual gameplay.
  • I don't get it. This for me looks like an Xbox One enhanced gane. 3 other titles impressed me way more than this. The rain effects look almost 360 Gen.
  • I'm not sure what you were seeing what this totally looks next gen.
  • Holy smokes how did I miss this?! Looks awesome!
  • First thing they showed so if you were late, you could have missed it
  • Bright memory on the phone looks amazing for what it is too. This team knows how to work magic with whatever hardware are given
  • You'll be surprised to learn this is a team of one
  • I mean, that actually makes what has been done here significantly more impressive. I know I've seen that being said before but I don't think it really sank in at the time.
  • I still don't actually think the actual game is going to play like that. The trailer is too "perfect" in the flow of the combat from enemy to enemy but hey, I'll be happy to be proven wrong.
  • And I saw the second video on Steam and it affirms exactly what my issues were, the game feels like it's on rails, it looks incredible but I'm not sold on the gameplay yet until I can actually play it.
  • I'm a bit lost. I thought this was just an enhanced 360 game. The Ascent, Creed and especially The Medium all looked far more impressive and actual next Gen.
  • In terms of visuals, this looks significantly better than the Ascent, The Ascent looks like a UE4 game of this generation. The weather and water effects in this are actually incredible. The characters are nothing special, but the environment is quite stunning.
